Yoga 14 - mini display port not working with HDMI ...

Question: Yoga 14 - mini display port not working with HDMI ...

Hello, I am attempting to use the mini display port outpt on the Thinkpad Yoga14 to connect to an HDMI monitor using a miniDP to HDMI adapter. I've tried two different adapters. The monitor is never recognized. However, the mini-display port will work with a miniDP to DVI or miniDP to VGA adapter cable (I verfied this at a store where there were multiple cables and monitors to use).

miniDP to HDMI: does not work
miniDP to DVI: works
miniDP to VGA: works

Has anyone else seen this problem?

Hello.I own the thinkpad yoga s1 and it's the first time I tried to use the mini HDMI port.I connected the laptop using a mini hdmi to hdmi cable (used two different cables).After I connected the cable the pc recognized the display (toshiba lcd)  but it didn't send any signal and all I got was a blue screen. Do you think it's a software problem or a hardware? and what can I do?(I'm using windows 8). Thanks for the help 

Answer:YOGA S1 HDMI mini port recognizes display but doesn't send any signal

have you tried the Toshiba LCD with any other machines? Also have you tried updating the BIOS firmware and drivers of your ThinkPad Yoga? Use ThinkVantage System Update to download the latest drivers.

I have a customer who has the above model Lenovo laptop. She hooked up an an external display via HDMI using a HDMI-mini HDMI adapter connected to the mini-HDMI port of the laptop which was working fine for more than a few months. She was using the Best Buy Insignia brand. All of a sudden, the external display no longer detected the laptop and the laptop didn't detect the second display. I remoted in and checked everything out and it seemed OK as far as drivers and such so, for simplicity sake (and after having her verify the external display was working wtih other devices), I had her pick up an Insignia HDMI-miniHDMI cable and just bypass the adapter. She tried that, no luck. So I remoted in again and uninstalled the Intel and Nvidia drivers and reisntalled them using the drivers from the Lenovo website. There was no change. I've done some extensive research about this issue in the forums and there have been other models with similar issues and the fixes were... using a different cable, different adapter, or both. These were mainly solutions to solve the problem of secondary displays not being detected at first, not fixing the issue of it working just fine for a while until one day... nothing. Has anyone come across an issue similar to this? I'm trying to get more of a definate solution versus swapping more adapters and cables around. One last idea I have is to hook it up to my monitor via an HDMI to DVI adapter using her HDMI to mini HDMI cable but I have a feeling, th... Read more

Aspire m5 - 583p - 5859 has both an HDMI port and a mini display port.  The monitor attached to the mini display port works fine until I connect the HDMI cable to a totally separate monitor.  Can both of the monitors be detected by the Aspire laptop at the same time?

Answer:hdmi and mini display port at the same time?

jetonenet,
 
You are only going to be able to use one at a time. You can extend your desktop so you use both the notebook screen and the monitor though.

I bought and received a Mini Display Port to HDMI TV adaptor from Amazon.ca.
I bought it because I need it to connect my Surface tablets to TV.

Well I received it today and tried it.
It works perfectly with my old Surface Pro1, but not on my Surface 3 ( it says No Signal on Surface 3 ).

Does anyone have an idea why is that ?

My mini HDMI output has stopped working. No video no sound on the external screen. I've updated everything- Windows, Intel Graphics drivers, all the critical updates on the Lenovo companion app but still no luck. The computer doesn't even seem to recognise that the output is connected (the little sound that plays when the cable is plugged in doesn't play). I have tested the cable and monitor on another lenovo device and all works fine.  Frustratingly the output seems to work when connected via the Thinkpad Dock.  Also of note: the advanced display settings no longer takes me to the desktop verison of the application. Even if I go through the control panel, but takes me to the basic windows 10 interface, Anybody have any ideas- I really need to be able to project from my computer

Answer:HDMI port is not working on my Yoga 2

My Yoga 2 13 was initially working fine with my mini HDMI to HDMI adapter. Then, it just stopped working. My projector wasn't getting any input from the computer. (Right when I was setting up for a presentation - groan!) When I got home, I got it to work again, but when I moved the computer, it jiggled the cable and it stopped working again. I moved the cable around and got it to work again, but I think that the mini hdmi port is at fault. It doesn't seem to hold the hdmi cable adapter tightly enough or easily make the connection. Very scary to try and depend on for a presentation.  Some people - mostly with the Yoga 2 Pro (mine isn't a pro) have been shaving some of the plastic from the end of the cable so that it fits in further. That seems to solve their problem. I look at my cable, though, and it looks like the plastic from the adapter isn't even touching the side of my computer. It looks like the metal part of the adapter is in as far as it will go even without interference from the plastic around the end of the adapter.  Does anyone else have a Yoga 2 13 (not pro)? How are your mini hdmi adapters working?

Hi,
I have a Dell Latitude E7440, Windows 7
The HDMI-port has been working fine for two years attaching to varius units - projectors, TV etc.Last year it stopped to work with one projector (where it uasually works) so I just used the docking station and an VGA cable instead - did not have time to look for what went wrong. After that, a few months later, the next device stopped to acknowlagde the HDMI signal, now it was my standard Samsung LED-TV. OK, so I guessed that the HDMI-cabel was the problem, but after testing several HDMI cables with no luck, I rather thought that the problem was a physical problemen in the HDMI port at the back of the laptop. To shame, hard to fix that. I now realized that there actually where another digital port on back sida of the laptop, the mini displayport -maybe that one is working? So I bought a converter "mini display port to HDMI" - and whooho - it worked. But just for a few days.. :-(
Now I am back to use the docking station and VGA and as you can understand - that is really anoying.I have been using laptops for + 20 years now so I do think I have some experience. It is not an "Fn + F8" problem or a cable problem. Any suggestions?

I'm using a Dell U3415W monitor. My video card is AMD Radeon RX480. The monitor is connected via DisplayPort to my computer. The monitor is connected via HDMI to my work laptop. When I want to switch over to HDMI, it acts as if I shut off the monitor on the Displayport shifting everything over to my secondary monitor. It causes no problem, but drives me nuts because when I switch back over to DIsplayPort, I have to move my open programs around again. Is there any simple way to make this stop? If I don't use DisplayPort, and instead use HDMI/DVI combination, the behavior described does not happen. I'm guessing that is just the way it is, but I'm hoping there is an easy way to make it stop.

Answer:Switching from Display Port to HDMI Shuts Off Display Port

Are you using two different Resolutions ? ie is the laptop using 3440x1440 like the Desktop ?
it sounds like the Monitor isn't resetting the Res after you switch back , you may need to hit auto adjust instead ?

Answer:mini hdmi port capability to run USB hub?

Hi deljohnson,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Running the HDMI port for USB function would not be possible since HDMI are designed for video /audio output compared to charging and data/media transfer that USB offers.
 
If you have a Yoga 3 1470 for example and both USB 3.0 on both sides is not an option, then the AC-in port can be used as a USB 2.0when you are not charging (AC in port doubles as USB port same for the Yoga 3 11).
 
The other USB 3.0 is not attached to the motherboard but instead, have its I/O daughterboard connected into.
 
Hope this help answer your query.
 
Regards

Hey folks. Maybe you can help me? Bear in mind I know little about display outputs and conversion methods. I want to output the screen of my Lenovo Yoga 2 (II) to my old Dell 2005FPW monitor - http://www.cnet.com/uk/products/dell-2005fpw/specs/ I have done research online about this, but no clear instructions are available about what hardware I'm going to need to get this to work.  My old Dell 2005FPW monitor accepts DVI input. My Yoga 2 outputs HDMI via the mini-HDMI port. I know cables are available for mini-HDMI to DVI, but I have seen reports for other laptops (including Lenovo) and this monitor not working using this setup. Apparently in some cases you need a converting device of some kind. There are also reports of Lenovo mini-HDMI connections only allowing output to HDMI (i.e. you can't use a single cable to convert), is this true for the Yoga 2? If so I guess I would definitely need a device to convert the signal to DVI. Added to the confusion is talk of this monitor having problems with HDCP, whatever that is, and I can't find out if the Yoga 2 outputs that.  Phew. So in conclusion, can I get away with a simple mini-HDMI to DVI cable? If not, will it work if I use a device to convert the signal, and if so, can you recommend a cheap and simple device to do this that a novice like me can understand? Thanks very much for any help!

I recently decided to upgrade my choice of laptop from an acer to a Lenovo Thinkpad yoga. Everything was going great with the laptop until I connected it to my SONY TV with a HDMI to HDMI mini adapter (amazon.co.uk link) and a standard HDMI cable i used with my acer. The quality seemed OK until i started the Film, the film plays fine on the computer screen but on the TV it has about 6 lateral lines that slice across the screen and cut the moving image almost like a flicker but very noticeable. This is not just the film/videos it also happens when i move my mouse or when anything moves on the screen. The audio however is fine. A bit annoyed i assumed it must have been the adapter so I bought a HDMI to HDMI mini cable instead (amazon.co.uk link). However the cable has the same issue, I know it can't be the TV so it must be the Laptop. I searched around the forum for a similar issue and found this Yoga 2 Pro issue (Link), so i cut down the plastic on the adapter by a millimeter but still have the problem. From what is otherwise a great laptop this is poor as i frequently like to hook my laptop up to my TV for a good movie night and even my £300 acer could handle that. Please HELP!

Question: Yoga 13 HDMI Port

Hello, First, I've read through all the different posts on here and scattered around Google about the HDMI port's issues on the Yoga 13, and nothing has worked yet. I generally have my Xbox 360 plugged into the HDMI 1 port of my JVC EM37T and the display works without exception. I unplug the HDMI cable from the Xbox and plug it directly into the HDMI port of my Yoga 13. The only problem-- the Yoga 13 doesn't detect that anything has been plugged into the HDMI port. The first time I plugged it in, it worked fine; the second time I tried, I had to unplug and plug it back in several times before it would work; third, even more plugging and unplugging; and now, it won't detect the HDMI input at all. My drivers are up to date. My TV is on the HDMI input setting. I can push F10 for days and nothing appears on the TV screen. I tried trimming down the plastic around my HDMI cable, and while it still works with my Xbox, it doesn't work in the laptop. Thanks so much. Any advice would be helpful. I'm starting to think I have a dud HDMI port.

Hi all, I have the i7 8G ram version of the X1 Carbon (UK version) and love it.  The only issue I have with it is in relation to the mini display port.  I use a lot of HDMI equipment so immediately bought the mini display to HDMI connector from Grifin, see http://store.griffintechnology.com/video-display-converter but whilst video exports fine no sound is being output via the HDMI cable and end up sound via the X1 speakers which are great for personal use but useless in a large room full of people. I already contacted Griffin support and they quickly referred me to Lenovo. All help much appreciated. Ben

I have had my X1 yoga for just over a month now and I didn't test the hdmi port until now. To my dismay it doesn't work. It doesn't recognise displays and I have tried different cords and different displays so its not an external problem. I have also updated my drivers and even did a system restore and the hdmi port still won't output. It's most likely broken. What's my best course of action?

I also baby my laptop so it couldn't have been damaged from my use. If I were to choose I want lenovo to send me a new X1, one that's fully functional.

Hello, I am trying to stream Netflix from my laptop so that it shows up on my TV using an HDMI cord and a mini-display to HDMI adapter. I got the video part working but the sound still comes through my computer instead of the TV. Other sources suggest going into the control panel and setting the TV as the default playback device for sound. I tried this but when I went to the sound settings but the television did not even show up as an option for a playback device, even when I had it show disabled and disconnected devices. I understand that it might be the adapter but the reviews for the adapter I bought online suggest that other people have gotten audio working with the same device, so I am going to have to assume for now that it is not the problem. I have a Lenovo T530 using windows 7; if you need any other information let me know. I am generally not too savy with computers so the more explanation the better. Thanks in advance!

1 monitor 1 cable

since DP and HDMI are both digital, I guess there is no advantage either way (unlike analog vs digital).

2 outputs usually means dual monitor support, although you'd have to check the manual. Dual screens is the best upgrade I've ever made, esp for my C4D work - also good for watching TV whilst surfing !

BTW although I mainly use DVI, I had to buy a HDMI lead recently to test some gear. I was surprised to see a note in the package to the effect 'warning do not hot swap this lead - power down all equipment before connecting'. Apparently there's some kinda live detecting pin that can cause probs when hot plugging.

My new Thinkstation D30 has two display ports and one DVI port, and I have 2 ASUS monitors (one is a 3D) with HDMI ports, plus DVI.  Right now I am using the DVI ports on the monitors, one monitor is connected to the DVI port on the Thinkstation, and the other is connected to a Display port via a DVI-Display Port dongle.  Both monitors also have HDMI ports. My question is this: Would there be any difference in performance if I were to use Display Port to HDMI dongles to connect the monitors, compared to the DVI connections?  I am not concerned with audio.

Answer:Display Port to HDMI

DVI doesnt carry audio, and if it is single link, has a lower resolution. HDMI can carry pretty much any type of audio signal. Displayport also supports audio, so displayport -> HDMI cable also supports audio (works for me driving 5.1 DTS and stereo).

What should I be looking at as far as cables and the choice between HDMI or Display Port. I am not familiar with either one. Also I am assuming the cabling is different for the two ports.

Answer:Display Port or HDMI

You can find adapters to allow you to use either with DVI. If your current monitor needs replacing anyway, an HDMI-native model will be cheaper than the DP version.

It can get more complicated if you have plans for multiple monitors down the road.

It was a cable issue.

Answer:Precision 7720 mini display port disabled

To my knowledge there's no way to disable the Mini DisplayPort output by design, so if it's not working, I don't think it could be a configuration issue.  If you haven't already tried toggling the "Graphics special mode" option, you may get different results by changing that setting, but the output is supposed to work either way, so that would just be some experimentation.  Otherwise, if you've already tried things like changing the cable and/or display (or you've validated that display and cable elsewhere), my guess is that this is a hardware issue that will require a motherboard replacement to resolve.

The micro-HDMI port on my Yoga 2 Pro needs to be replaced.  I'm hesitant to send it out for repairs, as there are no authorized repair centers in the country according to Lenovo's website, so it would likely take some time to ship to the US, and I need access to the software for business purposes.  So I have two questions that hopefully someone whose been in a similar situation could answer... 1. Am I able to order specific components for the Yoga 2 Pro, without sending it in for repair?  It looks as if the HDMI port resides on a circuit board that could be swapped out? 2. If I need to send it in, is there a process for creating an image of the SSD (or more specifically the partition that has Windows 8.1 on it) so I'm able to run it on another machine?  Cheers,

Answer:Ordering Yoga 2 Pro micro-HDMI port replacement part

Just a had a look at the Parts Lookup section of the support website.  It looks like the part that I need is part #90004971 - "VIUU3 SSD Board".  But it is apparently not customer-serviceable.  So that leaves me with option 2.

No issues in waking up from sleep when not connected to HDMI port. When it is connected, the machine won't wake from sleep.  Any thoughts? This is sleep, not hibernation. Also, tried unplugging the monitor once asleep and this does not help. The only way to recover from the sleep issue is to hold the start button for 4 second and hard reboot the machine.

I have an IdeaPad Yoga 13 with Windows 8.1. I have no internet connection while using HDMI. For example, without HDMI connected, I can access my Facebook homepage. Upon connecting a second screen via HDMI and then attempting to connect to Facebook (or any other website), my browser will continue attempting to connect to the host until I unplug the HDMI cable. It is not until I unplug the HDMI cable that my browser (without even having to refresh the page) will connect me to site I was attempting to connect to. Does anyone else have this problem? Any solutions?

the workstation has 3x DisplayPort and nothing else. we can use a DP - HDMI cable and everything works fine. what we want to achieve is using this cable to plug into an active HDMI  extender which plugs into the back of the monitor. we have three monitors, one local to the PC which uses a passive DP to DVI converter, this works fine. the other two monitors need to be run over the extenders but we cannot get them to work. would we need an active converter to get the DP signal to HDMI because we are using an extender or is there something else that we've missed?
